Volunteer Scotland learning and development programme.  Our programme has been designed to assist individuals and organisations with the development of volunteer participation. Through our unique learning approach, individuals and organisations explore their understanding of volunteering, its current trends and best practice.

Through our management courses participants are empowered to explore the key stages of the “volunteer life cycle” while explore different approaches to create a positive environment for volunteer participation. 

Our leadership courses explores the role of leadership within volunteer development and encourages a “new mindset” to the delivery of volunteer participation within the changing landscape of public reform, developing communities and individuals expectations/potential.
